Item Description...
The definitive account of AC/DC's rise to fame, when the ribald lyrics and charismatic stage presence of singer Bon Scott, along with the guitar work of Angus and Malcolm Young, defined a new, highly influential brand of rock and roll. Drawing on many interviews and featuring a gallery of rare photos, Clinton Walker traces the band's career through the life of their original front man, from small-time gigs to international success, up to Scott's shocking death in 1980. AC/DC's undiminished superstar status (they're the fourth-bestselling band of all time), and their indelible influence on a succession of genres from metal to grunge to rap, ensure that Bon Scott's presence continues to be felt strongly. HIGHWAY TO HELL offers the full story of this seminal rock figure. A consistent seller since it was first published here in 2001, HIGHWAY TO HELL has been updated for this edition. New details that have come to light in recent years about the last hours of Scott's life have been added, enabling the author to dispel persistent rumors and myths and once more set the record straight.

Highway to Hell  Sep 22, 2008
Good book about Jon Scott of AC/DC. AC/DC fans will enjoy this. Bon Scott is very important to AC/DC fans who were there from the beginning. Brian Williams is great, but it is still good to look back at the start of AC/DC.
Readable and interesting  May 23, 2008
Five stars for this book on AC/DC legend Bon Scott for a whole stack of reasons.

Firstly even though I'm neither a Bon fan nor an AC/DC acolyte this book is about a guy who really lived the life, walked the talk, did the hard yards - whatever cliche you want to use. For that reason along it makes interesting reading.

Secondly it's so darn readable, you just chew it up. It's a real page turner and given it's got a stack of info about AC/DC as well as the Australian rock scene in the 70's it probably appeals to a broader audience than those beer swilling types that just wnat to hear about drunken exploits.

And that brings me to my third reason for giving this the full five stars. The fact that the author doesn't talk down to his readers. Nor does he fall into the trap of lowering the tone to be inclusive - all up this is a well judged book in the writing department. And it's had a tone of accolades over the years - heck Classic Rock magazine even interviewed the author for a piece they were doing on Bon Scott.

From memory this book got up the noses of the AC/DC institution - more particularly the Young brothers - and at the time I got the impression that it was because the author got too close to the truth and essence of Bon. Having finally gotten the chance to own this book and read it in full has only affirmed my initial suspicion.

An excellent book for any fan of the band who isn't afraid to see one of their heroes look human, all too human.
A Poor Biography  Mar 2, 2007
Bon Scott is one of my heroes, and this book is a poor biography of his life. Although Bon's parents were involved in the book, the lack of other good sources is surprising and disappointing, and as a result this book is unsatisfying.

I guess we have to wait until the Young brothers write their book!
Value Reading !  Dec 4, 2006
A fine body of work by Clinton Walker that gives a balanced insight into the world of Bon Scott. Walker presents Scott as a multi-dimensional person (& musician) and relays to the reader (through factual comment & interviews with Scott's family, friends & colleagues) the many & often contradictory aspects that made up Bon Scott. Buy it & read it in conjunction with "AC/DC Maximum Rock & Roll" by Murray Engleheart with Arnaud Durieux, both excellent value publications !
I've recently purchased and read the 2007 edition of this book, although I also own the 2001 edition as well, and I intend to keep buying future editions as they are released. This book about Bon's life and death, written by Clinton Walker is absolutely brilliant!!! As a 47 year old Australian who bought all of AC/DC's albums on vinyl at the time they were released, back in the 1970s when Bon was the lead singer, (and which I now own on C.D.), I can assure you that Clinton Walker really knows what he's talking about when he talks, not just about Bon, but the whole Australian music scene back then, in general. Quite honestly, you will not find a more compassionate and more accurate book about Bon's life and Australian Rock and Roll, than this one. I really can't understand the very small number of reviewers who didn't give this book a favourable review: If I could give the book six stars out of five, I would. Clinton Walker's style of writing and story telling is so infectious that I just couldn't put the book down. He paints a beautiful picture of Bon Scott, who was obviously one of the kindest, warmest, funniest and honest blokes who ever lived on this planet. Bon was the greatest singer and songwriter and front man of all time, and Clinton Walker must be one of the best music journalists this country has ever seen. Congatulations Clinton Walker!!!!!!!!!! Please note that this particular review was written on the 2nd of August, 2008.
